Transmission started making grinding noise on way home. Took forever change gears put it in my garage dropped transmission found round bearings in bell housing. I can't tell if they were from front pump or torque converter. Having trouble getting front pump out seems stuck. Question being, would it be worth rebuilding or would it be better buy one? A lot of metal in pan. Any suggestions or advice appreciated.
With an Allison? I work on these everyday. Just get a rebuilt one from a factory with a warranty. your chances of it being something 'simple' are around 7%. anything more is not worth the downtime or failure rate of other parts.
